About M. W. "Skip" Whitcomb

Skip Whitcomb knew from an early age that he wanted to be an artist. He grew up on a ranch in Colorado where his family raised American quarter horses, an experience that instilled in him a deep love and respect for the land.

After earning a BFA from Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles, California, in 1971, Whitcomb returned to his native Colorado where fellow painter Ned Jacob introduced him to the virtues of outdoor painting.


Growing up in a hardworking ranching family instilled in Whitcomb a deep love

and respect for the land. "This connection to our physical world, the natural order, is what I seek to convey in my work," says Skip, "to let the reality of the facts come alive in my imagination, a living reality, as I see it."
